Snubber valve for electric gauge?

Is a snubber or needle valve necessary for an electric gauge for a fass 150?

I was told it only does damage to the mechanical gauges. The electric ones have a built in spike eliminator. I might just install it to be safe. $20 is cheap insurance.
I was just going to use the port on the fass system for my gauge tap.
I guess I'm confused on the location. The fass has a gauge port right at the outlet to the cp3. If I put it by the cp3 the only thing I would gain would be roughly 6' of fuel line for a cushion? At that point, pressure is pressure minus the friction of fuel between the pump and the cp3 which is very minimal due to low pressure. Am I overthinking?
